American way or not, mixing together a league and a cup is IMO just stupid.
see now I disagree on that point. It still gives teams a reason to fight if they're anywhere below 4th spot. CCL is so hard to attain and let's be honest, did you all even remember we qualified for the leagues cup next season? ...Exactly, no one cares about it. So the only way to really make any teams lover than 4th care is to allow them the chance to reach playoffs.

Could be worse. Could have had Unkel.

Let's be honest; there are very few officials in MLS that are any good. Almost all of them would get that reaction.
i miss toledo. he hasn't been around this season. that guy was a character! he gave us a lot of calls that should have definitely gone against us. lol.

out of current MLS refs, I probably think elfaf or whatever is the most consistent. plus he has the ability to end seasons for players, so they respect him. (jk)

I used to hate having Elfath as a ref because he made so many crazy calls... but then I realized he isn't nearly the worst, and he's pretty consistent with his harsh-ass calls. So he's probably one of the better ones. Yet we haven't had him as a ref in a while

When I think of Elfath, I think of him going to VAR to come back to give Callens a red card for this.


But then this summer during MLS is Back, not giving Diego Chara any card at all, nor going to VAR at all, for this.


I suppose with any ref, anyone may be able to find instances where they are inconsistent, but these really stick out to me.
Or it just highlights the referee bias against NYCFC o_O

injury report has Tavvon as available if Ronny chooses to select him.

Good to know!

Gideon, Heber, and Sands remain out.
That's really good news. Mostly for his development as with Callens being available, its hard to see where he would get some game minutes during the playoffs, but just him being available in training with the rest of the team is fantastic.
